DURANT, Okla. -- A teenager is arrested accused of a string of crimes, one of which left a woman hospitalized.

For Samantha Balrymple, having her car stolen was bad enough, but when she heard whoever took it may have used her car to hit another person, she was in complete disbelief.

Durant police say a black sedan was stolen from the Big Lots Distribution Center about 4:20 Wednesday morning. Then roughly two hours later, police say the same car was in an accident on Tennessee Street.

A 33-year-old woman was hit by the car, falling off the front hood.

Police say the suspect may have known the victim. She was eventually flown to the hospital with injuries. The car was returned to Balrymple.

"That’s what my husband was saying. We're going to be marked as the ones that hit that woman, and it wasn't even us," Samantha says.

Police arrested a 17-year-old man at the apartment complex where police found the stolen car. The Bryan County District Attorney's Office is deciding whether to charge the teen as an adult.

No word on the extent of the injured woman's condition.
